An original 1944 Dated British Military Undershirt made by 'Geo. Spencer Ltd'.
This pattern of undershirt was used by the British Army and RAF during the Second World War. It is a simple crew neck design which is pulled on over the head. It is made from an oatmeal coloured wool which is machine made.
Inside the original label is still present and states the manufacturer's name as 'Geo. Spencer Ltd'. The 1944 date is present as is the War Department broad arrow marking. The 'Warnorn' name which is found in many British made woolen goods from this period is also present as is the size of 3.
The top will fit around a 38" chest depending on desired fit. Because it is wool it stretches out and is designed to hug the wearers body closely. When laid flat it measures -
Chest - 18 1/2"
Shoulders - 19 3/4"
Length - 29"
The item is in good condition with signs of wear and use. There are a couple of small holes as shown in the pictures but overall it displays well. Please study the pictures and bear in mind that this is a pre-worn vintage item which has small issues commensurate with age.
A nice original example with a clear wartime date.
